Old business

*Steve volunteered at mall for National Volunteer Week - had fun people watching, and actually gave out some useful info to get new volunteers!

*Habitat was cancelled due to lack of interest.  I'd appreciate knowing why there was the lack of interest!  poor timing, too short notice, boring event, what? 
*Scott has agreed to pickup and return the dunking booth.
*Dunkees will be Chris, Steve, Scott, Michael, Emily, Mary, Julie and all others we can recruit!
*Thursday night will be the main relay for life setup - carnival games, canopy, etc. stay tuned for when/where.

So far we are expecting the following coverage for relay.  we need ~5 people at all times.
All relay
Sam, amy, joan, steve

friday eve then sat am

all relay until sat am

late fri eve to end

Fri night
